A Huge Finish
Hello my friends if there are still any out there blogging.
A few months ago I made a decision to give up stitching. With my eyesight deteriorating and my hands beginning to quiver I was finding it too difficult and lost interest.
So the problem then was what to do with all my stitching paraphenalia. Well I gave away some to friends, and sold a lot. All I kept were a few things I was not ready to part with yet, and what I needed to finish off a few old projects.
This included "The Book". Which I am pleased to say is now completed. I feel I should be throwing a party.
It has only taken me about 9 years..but the contents include pieces of work from the sample cloth at my first lesson in 1994 to the last of the 2013 Tast as well as other bits and pieces I have completed at workshops.
I have also written a separate diary and each page of "The Book" has its own page in the journal where I have written a little story about the embroidery and how it came about. "The Book" contains samples of stitches from Tast, and from other samples of stitching I have done through workshops and lessons. There are 24 double sided pages which means 48 individual pages.
I am so thrilled to have this project finished at last.
I still have another UFO to finish. I was going to give it to a friend to cut up for collage but she said no I should finish it. So that will be my very last lot of stitching, and it will become a wall hanging.
Than you to all my followers and friends who have been such a wonderful support over the years and given me encouragement with each of my endeavours. I consider you as family.
I dont know whether I will get on the blog again, but you never know I might suddenly take up another hobby in my dotage.
Enjoy your day everyone
